I have a Pentium 4 old machine with some enhancements made and the following is the hardware specification:

Pentium 4 2.4GHz
1.5GB DDR400 RAM
Gigabyte GA-7N400L socket 478 motherboard
250GB Seagate SATA Hard Drive
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy LS
K-Lite Codec v4.00

As per title's description, the blue screen of death appears when I play video files that contains WMV codec, whereby I drag the progress bar indicator to jump to certain part of the video. This happens on any media player installed on my PC.

The message from the blue screen of death can be found on my attachment enclosed.

Hope anyone can point out the cause of this problem. Thank you.

Does it say 0x0000008E?. If so I would guess it is a hardware issue. Try updating drivers and BIOS.

Correction. The motherboard should be GA-8S655FX-L instead of GA-7N400L, which is an AMD motherboard. Plus the graphic card currently using is Sapphire Radeon 9600Pro 256MB DDR2 AGP.

Actually it was K-Lite codec pack that caused the problem.
